Anyone bought a Teruyasu Fujiwara knife from their store in Tokyo, in person?

I'll be going to Japan soon and was wondering if this was possible, and if so, if they charge the same prices as they do on their online store.

Thanks
 
When I went, the price at the store was a little less than online.
Makes sense because they didn't have to pay the free shipping that were offering at the time.
They also didn’t charge me VAT.
It’s definitely worth the trip, even though there’s not much else in that neighborhood.
The shop usually has lots of fun stuff not online.
Bonus if you check ahead and go on a day that TF is there.
He’s fun to meet and will scratch your name on your knife if you like…

Wow he's real.
 
yes.. make sure to inspect every knife before buying

about every 12-15, there is at least one passable condition one.. I wish I am joking but I am not

the goods ones are great but plenty of questionable grind/finish ones

When I went to Kappabashi, I was told by an employee at Tsubaya to save my receipts and go to a Duty Free center and present them with my passport, get you a couple bucks back if you do purchase a denka there. It was explained to me that kitchen knives qualified since they're of cultural value. Same with books.
